I once had a similar problem after loading a corrupted
dataset - even after I -clear-ed the dataset, I could
create new byte variables and find garbage in them.

http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2004-06/msg00015.html

Later determined that it didn't matter if the dataset was
in memory, just that I had loaded it at some point.

Sounds like you resolved yours with an update, but it happens
again, consider your dataset.


cheers,

Hi all,

I suddenly experience that all my entries in stata are saved as integers?
How can that be?
If I for instance type:


. clear

. set obs 10
obs was 0, now 10

. gen a=2.73456

. disp a
2


While if I use some function it works:


. gen z=uniform()
. disp z
.88350743

What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance!

Regards
Hans
